Spanakopita @ Acropolis Cuisine
We don’t have many Greek restaurants in New Orleans, but this one keeps us from starving to death while hoping for more of them. The cooking is homestyle and yet polished. There’s no better example of that than the spinach and cheese pie. Its flavor is full and wonderful, while at the same time the lightness of the dish makes it irresistible. It make a great side dish to spread around the table, or a vegetarian entree. It warms up in an oven or a microwave easily, and for that reason is a great dish to bring to a pot-luck supper.
